Charlotte Craft Beer Week 2011
Charlotte, N.C. – Beer aficionados rejoice! Craft and Import beer fans of Charlotte will be happy to know that their efforts of requesting and purchasing great beer in the area is being rewarded with another Charlotte Craft Beer Week.
Last year’s beer week provided beer fans with 38 different events throughout the Charlotte area and included beer tastings, gourmet beer & food pairings and a freaky event that boasted a circus like atmosphere, called “Freak Fest”, which featured fire breathers, a girl on a bed of nails and a human pin cushion, all based around great craft beers from the USA.
Great breweries from America and across the world will be on display during the 2nd Annual Charlotte Craft Beer Week, at events across the Charlotte region.
Charlotte Craft Beer Week will kick-off with an opening night reception at The Visualite Theater near Uptown Charlotte on March 11th, 2011, with live music and great beers. Charlotte Craft Beer Week will feature tastings of fine hand crafted ales, paired with great food, fun and live music.
“Charlotte Craft Beer Week is a fun, grass roots planned event, unmatched by any other in the region,” said Darrin Pikarsky, founder of the Charlotte Beer Club and Charlotte Craft Beer Week. “Our goal is to provide examples of the best beers in the United Stated and abroad, to craft beer lovers in Charlotte, through hand selected events. All events are individually approved by our committee, to ensure a successful craft beer week. Most beer weeks, around the country are hundreds of events, slapped together, by anyone that wants to sell beer. We thrive on having 40-50 quality, hand chosen events!”
The goal behind Charlotte Craft Beer Week is to continue growing awareness and support for craft beer in the region and to introduce more people to some of the best beers in the world available locally. Tickets for Charlotte Craft Beer Week will be available at each individual event.
